LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas’ fire chief announced a plan about five months ago to install surveillance camera at fire stations throughout the city amid allegations of sex inside firehouses.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2xN7eA3 ) the installation of those cameras has begun, as city officials investigate another complaint alleging sexual activity in a firehouse last month.

Fire Chief William McDonald announced plans to put in surveillance cameras at a May 4 news conference, called after the Las Vegas Review-Journal inquired about claims by a former EMT that sex is common in Las Vegas fire stations despite department policies prohibiting it.

Former Fire Capt. Richard Loughry was charged In April with having sex with a 15-year-old prostitute inside Station 47, the first firehouse to be outfitted with cameras.

Camera Installation began last week.
